Beginners Resource compendium.

So seeing as how people seem to constantly be asking to assist your project, I think it'd be a pretty cool idea to have a thread directing people to some sites and tools with examples like:

[Videos]

The Hi-Poly weapons 3ds max design tutorial, Good for learning the general basics and more (3ds Max 2013 recommended, later versions have removed useful features.):

    http://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/all

A beginners dungeon creation kit walkthrough, again good for the basics (Including Navmeshing and cluttering):

     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZxuVY4dQ74

Skyrim Creation Kit Scripting, Watch this after the first CK tutorial:

     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeP05l7O77E

[Tools]

Modeling Programs:

    http://www.blender.org/ (Free Modeling program)

    http://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/3ds-max ( Modeling Tools available to students)

    http://www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/maya ( Modeling Tools available to students)

Texture Editing Tools:

    http://www.gimp.org/ (Free)

Audio Recording/ Editing tool:

    http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ (Free)

(The best way to remove background noise if you don't have a good mic is to find a box that you can fit your head and mic inside, stuff the sides with with a towel to absorb some of the background noise, and to cover and shut off any sources of it in the room. Hell use a comforter/blanket to cover yourself even further, the goal is to dampen any noise you possibly can. It's the difference between https://soundcloud.com/agureds/unmuffled and https://soundcloud.com/agureds/muffled )

(Audacities Noise removal tool is also good to use too, however multiple uses can give your audio a tin can effect.)

[Guides]

Guide on working with head meshes, and converting from tri to a workable file:

   http://wiki.tesnexus.com/index.php/Working_with_Skyrim_head_...

This is just a small part of what's good and available, if anyone wants to contribute some videos and guides that they feel were above average in usefulness then just post it and make it easier for newcomers to get started, afterall It can't hurt to compile a list of resources for new modders to get acquainted with the CK.

Good resources agure. We

Good resources agure. We already have tools/tutorials of varying quality within their respective hubs (some have become a bit buried) but these could be a welcome addition. Remind us if the new content goes up and we haven't included any of this yet, we'll try to remember though!
